Weekend Update

It was another busy weekend. Dogs being transported to their foster/forever homes and we had a booth at Dogfest as well.

Linda, Darlene and Caroline (accompanied by Sonja) had a really great time at the event.

There were so many people ... ALL dog people and many, many different breeds of dogs coming to see all the great stuff. Sonja stole the show at the booth. She had a blast meeting all the people and dogs. There were many children at the booth and Sonja was on her back getting belly rubs most of the time.

Our handsome boy George also had a long trip from foster home to forever home. Georges was great on transport and had a blast meeting all people on his travels.

Georges went home to LOTS of space to run and play, and he even has a furry sister and even human siblings too.

Congratulations, Georges and family!!

We also got Papu and Dodger into foster care and all is going well with them. Dodger is already starting to look and feel better, thanks to the people at the shelter that tended to him and cared for him until he could go into foster care. He will soon be looking and feeling better.

I hear Dodger is a very playful boy, full of beans. He'll give his foster rotti brothers and sister a run for their money LOL Papu is doing well. Foster mom is already bragging about how sweet he is. He's met many of the neighbourhood dogs and their people and he loves them all. Papu's foster doesn't have a digital, but hopefully we'll get down to see him and get some pictures.

Pitbull or Rottweiler/Boxer Mix?

The Mississauga News had a great editorial the other day about a very disturbing incident that happened in Mississauga. Here is the article for your perusal. Check out this article:

Now, I am not a lawyer, but I would be interested to know if the Veterinary Association has an ethics committee. In my opinion, this vet should be hauled up on the carpet for what he has done. It is unfortunate that his name cannot be published so that unsuspecting dog owners don't fall into the same trap. I will be following this story very closely and will update when I can.

Crazy Busy Weekend

The weekend was crazy busy!! I think I was on the phone for the major part of the weekend. And, boy is there a lot of news to tell. We had three dogs coming into foster care. One is a beautiful little girl named Gracie (named by her rescuer). She was found running the roads with nowhere to go. The kind road worker fed her his lunch and took her to a nearby shelter. Unfortunately, he was told once her stray time was up, she would be euthanized. He couldn't bear to have that happen, so rescue was called. Check out Gracie's picture.
Gracie is approximately 4 months old and still very much a puppy who is full of energy. Thank God she is as smart as she is, or she would never have survived. We have NO idea what she ate while on the lamb, but she is skin and bones. She appears to be a collie mix of some sort. I'm sure we can tell better once she has some meat on her bones. We also picked up the two senior Shih Tzu's and they are settling nicely into foster care. They are very stinky though and in need of grooming which will be done, hopefully today.  Fido's picture.
Please, stay tuned for more updates on our new trio Gracie, Fido and Precious.


It was quite the month...

This weekend was another busy weekend for ANML-RESQ.

Denise at Spoil Me Pets had her bake sale on Friday. All was going well with her bake stand. Many of the wonderful people and businesses in Mount Forest were enjoying a fresh brewed cup of coffee and Denise's home-made butter tarts. Denise had the table set up in front of her store so she could enjoy the beautiful, sunny weather. People were strolling over and asking about Chester's Fund and about the rescue. While Denise was tending to a customer in the store, upon her return, to her horror, she discovered the donation box was gone!! YES, you heard right ... someone had stolen the donation box with all it's contents. Denise was horrified and tearful at the thought that someone would stoop SO LOW as to steal from a rescue. She was heart-broken, but was not giving up.

This happened around noon and she told our volunteer that the day is NOT OVER YET and thankfully, the thieves did not steal the baked goods. She also called the police and the local paper to advise them of the dastardly deed. The local paper was also determined to make this right. The paper sent their reporter and photographer over and will be posting this story in the local paper this week. Our volunteer, Jen, met Denise at the end of the day to console her and thank Denise for her endless efforts on behalf of ANML-RESQ.

Denise is such a determined lady and good friend to our rescue. She presented our volunteer with an envelope containing $200.00 and a promise of more to come as she would continue to sell her baked goods throughout the weekend. She wrote an editor to the local paper as well.

THANK YOU Denise for ALL you do for us and for NOT allowing this person(s) actions to take away from the good deeds you do for all animals. Chester would be so proud to know that SO many people have heard his story and want to help in his memory.

On a brighter note ... we were able to take two little sweeties into our foster care. A very stunning little Cocker Spaniel girl named Lola and a very sweet little Malti-Poo girl named BB.

This is B.B. Now Abby.
Meet Lola Lola - so sweet.

We would also like to welcome our newest foster home, Susan, who is fostering our little Malti-Poo girl.

Both girls were rescued from a puppymill and are enjoying "real" life for the FIRST times in their lives. They are experiencing "grass" for the first time and they are experiencing life without living behind bars for the very first time!! For more information, check out our Petfinder site (

Everything will be so new to them. Many thanks to Sharon and Sue for offering their hearts and homes to these beautiful girls.


Jamie is Up for Adoption

It has been a busy summer ... we have had a few great adoptions and have met a few new friends to ANML-RESQ. Hope your summer is going good.

But, I would like to tell you about Jamie...

One day, over three years ago, my husband and I took in these two darling pups to foster. Both babies needed to get out of the shelter and they were stressing badly. We couldn't take one and not the other, so we offered to take both.

Enter into our lives, Sassy and Jamie. Two of the cutest little puppies you ever laid eyes on.

Check out Sassy and Jamie's pictures.

Unfortunately, within days of arriving, both pups fell ill with parvo. Thankfully the diagnosis was made quickly. Although both were sick, Jamie was in very, very bad shape. We prayed every day for a week and finally our babies returned from the vet. Not long after recovering, Jamie was adopted to a wonderful family.

At that time, we decided we couldn't bear to see Sassy leave us too, so we took the plunge and adopted our baby girl.

Sadly, due to unfortunate circumstances, our Jamie has returned to us. It was a truly heartbreaking circumstance and a little girl is left heartbroken and missing her bestest friend. Preparations were made for Jamie's return.

It has been a LONG time since we have brought a new-comer into our family and we weren't sure how the gang was going to react. Would Sassy remember her bratty, brother? Sassy isn't always fond of other dogs ... this would be an interesting experience.

Jamie arrived late on Friday night so we decided to put him in the bedroom and let him chill for the night. No meetings with the other furkids. He had already been through so much. So, the next morning, after breakfast and potty it was time for the test. We put all the dogs into separate areas and brought Sass and Jamie together. There was no posturing, no grumbles. They smelled each other and we knew at that moment that they both remembered each other. After all those years ... AMAZING!!! Next was Tegra and Pebbles. AGAIN, both girls remembered Jamie. Although he was a little apprehensive (Tegra has grown HUGE since they last met), Jamie and Tegra are actually the best of friends now.

You have to check out their pictures ... it is truly amazing...

Jamie is settling in beautifully and is getting used to being back again.

I am sure I'll have lots of stories to tell as we get to know Jamie a little better. To be honest, he hasn't changed a stitch since he was here. Same personality, same silly ways. The only difference now is that he is much bigger (-:

We love you Jamie! It is nice to have you back home ... even if it is only until your forever home can be found.


Petey and Oreo

Anyone want a hotdog? lol

This little hotdog's name is Petey. Petey and his sister Oreo are looking for their forever homes.

Check out Petey and Oreo's pictures.

While it would be wonderful if they could go to a home together, we understand this is not always possible.

These two little cuties will be coming to our rescue soon, but I thought I would give everyone a sneak peak.

Petey and Oreo are approximately 6-7 years young. They are housetrained, good with kids and enjoy the company of most other dogs.

If you think you might want to adopt either of these little ones or know someone who would, please check our main page for the on-line adoption application or email for more information.


All About Pets

All About Pets
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter holiday weekend. It was nice to see the sun shine most of the weekend. Hopefully, spring is just around the corner.

It was a fairly quiet weekend and a couple of friends and I got together and visited the All About Pets show at the Toronto International Centre. As always, there were lots of vendors selling pet related items, LOTS of dogs, cats, rabbits and even birds to see.

When we weren't shopping, we stayed with our friends at the Upper Credit Humane Society ( booth. They had Max, the husky mix at the booth and his sweet personality drew many, many people to the booth. I am sure Max was very tired by the end of his day. He did a great job, schmoozing with everyone and he met many, many new friends.

I wanted to mention one of the booths, in particular that we visited as I am so excited that someone is FINALLY taking the initiative to start a low-cost spay/neuter clinic.

Thousands of healthy pets are euthanized every year in the GTA because they are unwanted. Support the only proven solution to pet overpopulation. Low-Cost spay/neuter clinics. Spaycentral Toronto has already raised $145,000.00 in start-up costs for the GTA's first non-profit, high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic. Help them raise the $70,000.00 still needed to open the clinic. The clinic will operate on a proven self-financing business model. Revenues will cover expenses. This will ensure the clinic remains open and achieves the aggressive sterilization targets needed to reverse pet overpopulation targets in the GTA. To find out more about Spaycentral and the clinic or to make a donation, please visit or send your cheque to Spaycentral Toronto, P.O. Box 38183, 550 Eglinton Ave. W., Toronto, ON M5N 3A9

The ladies we spoke to at the booth mentioned the spay/neuter fees would be $50.00 for each animal (bulk rates available). Anyone is welcome to bring their pets, even if they do not reside in the GTA area. They believe the clinic will be up and running by the fall of this year.

UPDATE... Tucker is now safe in a rescue.

Tucker is 5 years old and was an owner surrender to a rural shelter we rescue from. He had been tied to a tree almost his entire life. Check out Tucker's picture.

Despite that, he is very lovable and kind and extremely gentle and gets along with everything. He is smaller in size and short legged, tri-coloured. He is neutered and vaccinated and heart worm tested negative. We also treated him for an ear infection that he seemed to have.

He was in one of our foster homes, but they returned him to the shelter today for personal reasons. We do not have a spot for him now as we just removed several dogs from that shelter over the weekend.

We desperately want to ensure he does not get lost in the shuffle now and he must be so confused going form a nice warm home (finally in his life!) to the shelter again.

He loves walks and cuddles and just being near his owner. He was being fostered in a townhouse with another small breed dog. There was someone home with him almost all the time due to their schedules, so we aren't certain how he would do being alone during a full work day all week. It's NOT that he showed separation anxiety behaviour ... they just never left him alone much, so can't say if he's a barker or not.

If anyone can take this fellow to foster or adopt, please email myself right away at (Alynn Forrest McRae)
